Melania on Trump book

After one year in office, Donald Trump has come under fire [VIDEO] by many critics, including those in the majority of the mainstream media. Trump's candidacy even started out with many labeling it a joke, with some suggesting it was all just an attempt to bring higher ratings to his reality show "The Apprentice." Despite this, Trump gained popularity and rode that momentum to a Republican primary victory.

Just a few months later and the billionaire real estate mogul shocked the world by defeating heavy favorite and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Since then, speculation has grown about whether or not Trump even wanted to be president in the first place, which was elaborated on in greater detail in a new book by Michael Wolff titled "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." One of the excerpts released on Wednesday morning revealed that First Lady Melania Trump was allegedly promised that her husband wouldn't even win the election, despite the eventual outcome. As reported by NBC News on January 3, Melania is not pleased.

In the book by Michael Wollf, Donald Trump Jr.

reportedly told a a close friend that when the results of the election were announced, his father "looked as if he had seen a ghost" and that the new first lady "was in tears—and not of joy."

A statement by Melania Trump was released and quickly pushed back against the claims in the book. "The book is clearly going to be sold in the bargain fiction section," Melania said. The statement goes on to read that Melania "encouraged" Donald Trump to run, and that "she was confident he would win and was very happy when he did."

Twitter reaction

After Melania Trump's remarks were released, Twitter had a field day in opposition. "LOL. It's already a bestseller in pre-sales," one tweet read.

"Yeah she damn sure looked happy didn't she.

Only took her 8 months to move in. LoL," one Twitter user wrote. "Lying liars who lie," another tweet added.

"We can tell how happy she is by her smile and active participation as @FLOTUS. She loves her life..." an additional tweet added, while attaching a picture of a visually upset Melania Trump. "Well, if it's truly false, when can we expect you to file suit?" a tweet wondered. The backlash continued as those who oppose the administration laughed while the Trump White House struggles in kicking off the new year.
